HD or not HD, that is the question
Verified purchase
This comment is in relation to the Amazon Video format.

At the current price of £4.99 for the first season in HD it was a no-brainer. When settling down to watch the first episode, I thought for a moment that I had accidentally purchased the SD version! In the first 25 mins or so, the quality was very clearly SD with the exception of a single scene which was in HD. I have a 50Mbps connection and the Amazon Fire TV Stick displayed 1080p right from the start and remained on 1080p throughout, so I know the issue was not at my end.

From around the 25 min mark, there were no further issues - whilst certainly not the best classic TV remastering I've seen (Batman, Star Trek TOS, The Avengers, The Prisoner), it was undoubtedly HD. When reading reviews of the Blu-ray edition there were no comments regarding an issue with the first episode, so I can only assume that the problem lies with Amazon's version.

I grew up watching Knight Rider and I'm looking forward to re-watching the rest of the first season - hopefully in HD.

Great theme tune, still used in modern tracks.

Very old fashioned, but, brings back happy memories of family viewing, some 30 odd years ago. We loved Kitt, and Michael Knight. My son had a model of Kitt, and it's sudden re-appearance from the attic, is what inspired me to watch the series again, years after Amazon came into being!

They just don't make family entertainment like this any more
Verified purchase
Utterly timeless classic. The Hoff seems to have stepped right into his booted jeans. Is he 20? 30? 40? Who can tell. He is very very tall and of indeterminate age and mystery. Of course KITT is much cleverer than him. Slyly scripted with lots of excitement, they just don't make family entertainment like this any more. My daughter loved it. Of course the irony is that it has aged very well - talk of self driving cars etc doesn't seem futuristic at all any more. So hit that download button and enjoy "Darth Vader's Bathroom" all over again.

How did I live without this?
Verified purchase
I had not heard KITT's dulcet tones since I was a child, entranced by the sleek black shark of a car and its mysterious but sartorially gifted master, the sultry Hoff himself. DAZZLE at the impossible stunts! GASP at the perfectly choreographed PG-safe fight scenes! WEEP as a small-town girl in a lumberjack shirt falls for the impossibly coiffed mane of the Hoff. GIGGLE at the supremely pitch-perfect dialogue.

Game of Thrones, eat your heart out.

Cheesey tv from the Eighties
Verified purchase
Binge watching telly from yesteryear, which though somewhat predictable, at least required scripts and acting rather than the talentless reality drivel modern tv heaps on us to please snowflakes and the recently braindead

Knight rider a lone man on a crusade to protect the innocent
Verified purchase
It was ok for an 80's series but a bit predictable I think the story line could be more towards the Kitt (knight industry two thousand) I liked the idea of a smart car just as I liked Airwolf
